[Feature Request] Add ANC toggle off to Wyze Buds Pro

Please add a toggle to turn off active noise canceling with the Wyze Buds Pro. You can do this through the app, but when you are connected to a non-Android / IOS platform, you can’t disable ANC. I’d suggest adding a third state to the hold button. Have the ANC setting rotate among ANC On / Transparency / ANC Off.

In addition, add the ability to retain the previous ANC state between charges. It seems that the ANC setting resets each time the buds are placed in the case.

Strong Strong vote for. Sometimes ANC is too little outside noise and Transparency mode is too much; where having it off is juuuuuust right

Sometimes ANC is not required while Transparency is “overwhelming”. Off is a happy medium between ANC (-40db) & Transparency (+ db) environmental sounds as the Buds can physically provide up to -20db). Being Off would also extend the Bud Pro battery life.

With the ear buds, it’s not always necessary for powered Signal Processing - give everyone’s lifestyle use-case.

So to turn it Off, you cannot “tap-hold” to cycle through it. Instead you have to go through a plethora of steps:

  • pull out your phone/device and unlock it
  • open the Wyze App
  • select the Wyze Bud Pro
  • wait for bud acquisition
  • swipe the mode indicator to “Off”

The ear bud’s firmware does not cycle through to Off - though Off is deeply buried in the App. This necessary firmware feature (which should be minimal code) would be a major convenience and would extend battery life (and our hearing from Transparency :slight_smile: )

Thanks in advance. Cheers, Markas.

BTW, I forgot to mention. The cycle pattern should be updated to be:
ANC (-40db) > Off (-20db) > Transparency (amplification)

This would allow our ears to hear the external sounds get progressively louder (to become acclimated) vs jumping right into Transparency, then Off.

Please allow us to set the Auto Noise Cancellation (ACN) to OFF by default.

It’s annoying to have to disable this function EVERY TIME I use the Wyze Buds Pro.

Tapping the earpiece only offers the ability to have the ACN turned ON or in Transparency mode. Neither of which I want to use.

Please update the functions to give us the option to have ACN OFF by default.

Thank you

I’d love to see it implemented as “Remember Last ANC Setting”, where it just uses whatever setting you used last.

Agreed, This would be even better.

I’ve got to agree here. I normally use the buds with a device that cannot use the Wyze app, so turning ANC on and off is critical.

Agree 100% also. If this feature were available, I’d buy at least one more set. (Probably two) Preferably if the long presses cycled through all three settings though. More useful to me.

I use these headphones every day on the treadmill. It’s annoying that I have to open the app to set my ANC choice which defaults to high. I like to use low ANC which is only supported in the app. I’d like to see a firmware update allowing the headphones to remember my
ANC choice.

This needs the feature to remember the last state of ANC. I can not use the buds with ANC on it makes me feel sick. I get dizzy and disoriented. It is such a pain to have to open the app every time I want to use them to turn it off. I find myself not wanting to use them.

Currently you can only toggle 2 of 3 modes on the Buds Pro (ANC on or transparency mode).

Requesting the add of ANC off without transparency mode to be added to the toggle list.

Thank you
